About Us

The term "hacker" came out of the earliest of computer enthusiasts such as the ARPAnet experiments for programmers and networking wizards. It's people like these that gave us the Internet, Unix, and every other life changing technology. Hackers are not the ones breaking into systems, stealing credit cards, and causing havoc.If you love open source, decentralization, Linux, or want to learn tech. This podcast is for you.

How to Play Dwarf Fortress in the Terminal

The following instructions are for Arch Linux without Xorg (so essentially terminal only arch or what you get after a fresh Arch Linux install). If you are using Ubuntu server or another distro, the steps should be close to the same. But not exact so please do your research. You may get lucky and just have to edit the config file. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hackerculture/support

How To Block Ads On Your Entire Network

Many people use an ad blocker like uBlockOrigin to block ads from tracking us around the web but this only works on the devices it is installed on. We can do one better and prevent them all across any network in our control. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hackerculture/support

Webapps Sandboxed Revisited

How To Increase Android App Privacy

"The idea behind it is to provide a secure way to browse popular webapps by eliminating referrers, 3rd party requests, insecure HTTP requests, etc. It accomplishes this by providing a sandbox for multiple webapps. Each webapp will run in it's own sandbox, with 3rd party requests blocked, and all external links opening in an external default web browser. Homescreen shortcuts can be created to any of the saved webapps." - Toby Kurien, creator of WebApps Sandboxed Browser. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hackerculture/support

A Technology Nerd's Notion Review

Then I was browsing YouTube at the end of the night to relax before bed and came across a video talking about note-taking applications that are both cross-platform and robust. This is where I heard about Notion again. I can't remember where I first heard about it, but the first time I chose not to give it a go. After that first video, I looked up some others on Notion and saw how much this app can do and aims to achieve. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hackerculture/support
